Synopsis / Plot
A young girl inhabits an isolated island with her scientist father and communicates with a reclusive author of the novel she's reading... Anything can happen on Nim's Island, a magical place ruled by a young girl's imagination. It is an existence that mirrors that of Nim's favorite literary character, Alex Rover, the world's greatest adventurer. But Alexandra, the author of the Rover books, leads a reclusive life in the big city. When Nim's father goes missing from their island, a twist of fate brings her together with Alexandra. Now, they must draw courage from their fictional hero, Alex Rover, and find strength in each other to conquer Nim's Island.
Critics' reviews
  • "A quest for all ages. (...) An entertaining, diverting adventure saga that offers excitement and a relatable heroine for children, and also will remind their parents of favorite classics from their own youth. (...) Rating: ★★½ (out of four)."
  • "Sweet but ho-hum adaptation of Wendy Orr’s novel, a comedy-adventure that never quite finds its tone."
  • "8- to 12-year-olds will have a good time, and you'll have a good time watching them have a good time. Otherwise, the film's an oddity - an engaging, slightly overcooked fantasy"
